Moscato d’Asti DOCG

Description

The Moscato grape from different vineyards are vinified and blended to produce a delicate, aromatic wine with fragrant features.
Straw yellow color with plenty of golden tinges, it has a subtle spritzy personality that brings out its fragrance to the full. The nose is fruity and aromatic, with hints of the grape itself, rose petals, yellow peaches, honey and lime flowers.

A sweet, fresh and inviting wine, with a stimulating acidity that makes it hard to put down, and an appealing, refreshing celebration at any hour of the day.
